The Wait (Italian: L'attesa) is a 2015 Italian drama film directed by Piero Messina and starring Juliette Binoche. It tells the story of a Sicilian mother who lives with her son's fiancée, and refrains from telling the fiancée that her son will not return. The film is loosely based on two works by Luigi Pirandello. It was screened in the main competition section of the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.


Dans les grands salons d’une ancienne villa marquée par le temps, Anna, touchée par un deuil soudain, passe ses journées dans la solitude. La campagne sicilienne, sauvage et d’une grande beauté, entoure la maison et l’isole tandis que le brouillard se lève lentement sur les flancs de l’Etna. Seuls les pas de Pietro, l’homme à tout faire, rompent le silence. A l’improviste arrive Jeanne, la petite amie de Giuseppe, le fils d’Anna, qu’il a invitée à venir passer quelques jours en Sicile. Anna ignorait l’existence de Jeanne et Giuseppe est absent. Il va revenir bientôt, très bientôt..... c’est ce que dit Anna à Jeanne. Les jours passent, les deux femmes apprennent lentement à se connaître et attendent ensemble le jour de Pâques, où Giuseppe rentrera pour la procession.

In 1593 London, William Shakespeare is a sometime player in the Lord Chamberlain's Men and poor playwright for Philip Henslowe, owner of The Rose Theatre. Shakespeare is working on a new comedy, Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter. Suffering from writer's block, he has barely begun the play, but starts auditioning players. Viola de Lesseps, the daughter of a wealthy merchant, who has seen Shakespeare's plays at court, disguises herself as "Thomas Kent" to audition, then runs away. Shakespeare pursues Kent to Viola's house and leaves a note with the nurse, asking Thomas Kent to begin rehearsals at the Rose. He sneaks into the house with the minstrels playing that night at the ball, where her parents are arranging her betrothal to Lord Wessex, an impoverished aristocrat. While dancing with Viola, Shakespeare is struck speechless, and after being forcibly ejected by Wessex, uses Thomas Kent as a go-between to woo her. Wessex also asks Will's name, to which he replies that he is Christopher Marlowe.

From Turner Classic Movies: "The downtrodden Lester family lives in rural Georgia alongside the old tobacco road, on once-prosperous farm land which is now fallow. The head of the family is Jeeter (Grapewin), a shiftless man who is always making grand plans but never following through with them. The other Lesters are Jeeter's hard-working wife Ada (Patterson); their daughter Ellie May (Tierney), who is a spinster at twenty-three; their high-strung son Dude (Tracy), who is obsessed by automobiles; and Jeeter's silent, browbeaten mother (Tilbury). The Lesters are constantly on the verge of starvation. One afternoon they are visited by Lov Bensey (Bond), who is married to Jeeter and Ada's daughter Pearl (who never appears in the film), the family attacks him and steals his bag of turnips.
